This year marks my 34th year of teaching and coaching at East Central.  For all but one of those years, I have taught 6th grade.  This year, I will be teaching social studies (Minnesota History) and science.   It has been many years since I have taught social studies, particularly the MN History side of it, but am excited but exploring the great state of MN with my students, helping them to see how our past brought us to where we are today.

And then there is science, a subject that looks at and helps us understand our world and how things work.  I am always amazed at how its seems everything works and fits together in the world with all of its complexities.  I try to bring that same amazement to the classroom through the various activities and topics we explore.

I am a 1981 graduate of East Chain High School, a small (20 students in my graduating class) rural school in southern Minnesota.  I played football, basketball, and ran track.  I attended Bethel University where I majored in Elementary Education and Social Studies.  I played basketball there for one year as a freshmen.   I received my masters degree from the University of Minnesota in 2005.

I grew up on a farm and have two brothers and one sister.
